  This was a pulov in which tomato soup is used to make it more flavourful and colorful . This pulov will be excellent lunchbox recipe. This recipe is easy to make with the tomato soup or else use the tomato puree.

Onion – 1
Tomato soup – ½  cup
Mixed vegetables ( peas , carrot , cauliflower , potato ) – 1 cup

Heat ghee in a pressure cooker, add the cinnamon , cloves and cardamom and let it fry.
Add in the chopped onion and sauté wel.
Add in the ginger garlic paste and chopped vegetables and sauté for a minute.
Add in the tomato soup , salt , chilli powder , garam masala , water and mix well.
When the water starts boiling add in the soaked rice and mix well.
Close the lid and cook for two whistles.
When the pressure releases , open the lid and stir gently.

Tomato soup pulov is ready to serve.
Chopped mint leaves can be sprinkled on top.

Serve with any raita of your choice.

Note :
It can be made in a pan , by cooking rice separately and mixing all together.I find cooking in pressure cooker is easy and time saving.
